Blog Guy, I read something very strange recently, and I want to find out if it’s true. It was in a blog.

golden model 240Then I’m guessing it is true. They monitor us bloggers pretty carefully for any sign that we’re deviating from what is factual.

Well, the blog I read said that 22 years ago a space ship crashed into a remote part of the Rocky Mountains. It carried a whole tribe of beautiful Neptunian goddesses, who began a new life here on Earth.

So far it sounds pretty reasonable to me. Go on.

It said they wear costumes made from polished gold tiles. They worship a queen who dresses in black with a cobalt blue cape, and they keep Earth men as their love slaves.

And?

It also said their mission on Earth is to ride roller coasters, catalog every Heckle and Jeckle cartoon, and “see what can be done about the Dutch people.”

Yes, all of this is perfectly accurate. Where are you going with this?

I just wanted to find out if they’re hiring.

Shra; you take the outfit, I’ll have the paint. That’s Ford Tractor Blue, I could use it.

I learned to drive on a Ford tractor. At the time, it was the only tractor I was tall enough to drive.

According to a helpful translation from Doc, this person is saying “Oh man, the blue under the eyes does not look good.”

“What color is the sky in your world?”

Silly Mr B: we all live under the same sky. But I’m glad to see the Dutch get some print because they invented tulips. See?
